Scientists Sequence Genomes of Two Bumblebee Species

Genetic researchers have sequenced and analyzed the complete genomes of two key bumblebee species – the European buff-tailed bumblebee (Bombus terrestris) and the North American common eastern bumblebee (Bombus impatiens). The results appear in two papers published in the journal Genome Biology. “The sequencing and annotation of these bumblebee genomes constitute a great leap forward [...] —> Read More
